Based on Charlie Is Clean, the best-selling novel written by a convicted prisoner, White Night is the story of Charlie who attempts to kick his drug habit. He is helped by a fellow prisoner, Shlomo, and several prison service personnel who support him throughout his long ordeal. Charlie’s arduous route to cleanliness becomes spiritual as well as purely physical, and includes an unexpected friendship with the tenacious Shlomo. A first time offender, who finds himself imprisoned with serious drug users and dealers, discovers strengh and fortitude he didn’t know he had. Through courage and faith, he vows to stay sane and alive. Charlie and Shlomo, who come from vastly different social and ideological backgrounds, over-come the harsh and inhospitable prison conditions to create a bond of friendship between them that transcends their many differences…
